One notable point though: Why does a film produced by the US Government label all of Great Britain/the UK, as 'England', which is in fact only one constituent of the nation? I understand it is a common misconception over in America, but it seems strange to see it in a film produced by those with a presumably sound grasp on geography and politics. Another instance of over-simplification for the benefit of the 'Average Joe' in the cinema?
A further point i've also just noticed! Not all of the footage used genuinely comes from the events described. There's a few noticable and obvious incidents, but a good example is in part 1, where an old woman crosses herself whilst ostensibly looking at German bombers. This, interestingly, can also be found in earlier anti-Soviet propaganda, where the woman is seen observing the destruction of a church by the Red army. An intriguing footnote to a very intriguing historical document.
